Founded in the spring of 2016 and based in Chemainus, BC, Rainforest Arts operates under the umbrella of the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society (CVCAS).
Rainforest Arts is dedicated to celebrating Island artists through our retail gallery, website and by promoting all arts related events in the Cowichan Valley.
Participation in Rainforest Arts is open to artists on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. All artwork undergoes a jurying process and participants must become a member of the CVCAS.
Are you an artist looking to feature your work in the gallery?
Our Mission Statement is:
“To showcase and support Island Artists and to promote excellence and creativity in all forms of visual arts.”
Our gallery showcases a diverse collection of one-of-a-kind artworks created by talented artists from Vancouver Island. We proudly exhibit a wide range of their creations, including canvas paintings and custom-crafted pottery, providing a vibrant glimpse into the artistic talent of the region.
Rainforest Arts relies solely on the generous support of volunteers. Whether you’re interested in working on the managing committee, as a volunteer or as a consignment artist we’d love to meet you.
